I wish I had some photos to share but . . . yes . . . we definitely camped a lot when I was a kid. I don't remember camping in the back yard though. We camped in parks and at least two summers I remember camping at my aunt and uncle's farm near Port Stanley. When the kids were small, Hal and I took them camping a few times. We took our grandsons and niece on a road trip in a borrowed motor home one summer. That was fun. A couple of years ago, Hal and I took the seats out of the van, put in an air mattress, stove and cooler, and spent a long weekend letterboxing. Now-a-days my idea of camping involves a king size bed and a mini bar and shower.
